In harrowing testimony, two Marines appeared in a Philadelphia courtroom to describe to a judge how two Antifa goons attacked them on November 17.
The Marines, Alejandro Godinez and Luis Torres, testified that they were in the city last month to attend an official armed forces event at a local hotel. They were sightseeing in Old City, unaware that there was a “We the People” rally going on only a block or two away. This rally, put on by the controversial Proud Boys group, had drawn out dozens of Antifa counter-protesters, including the defendants in this case: Thomas Massey and Tom Keenan.
While perusing some of the historical landmarks along the way, the two Marines were approached by Keenan, who began taunting them with questions like, “Are you proud? Are you Proud Boys?” Godinez and Torres testified that they had no idea what the thugs were talking about.
But instead of confirming that these two Hispanic military men were actually “Nazis,” the Antifa goons attacked them physically, pelting them with punches, kicks, and mace while calling them “white supremacists.”
“I’m Mexican!” Godinez cried out, but that only further inflamed the mob, which had now grown to more than ten people.
From Philly Mag:
After that, as the attack continued, both men said that members of the group, including Keenan, repeatedly used ethnic slurs, including “spic” and “wetback,” against the marines. (There was no testimony that Massey used any such language).
Godinez testified that he was maced at least six times, hit in the head, and kicked in the ribs, and he said that while he was being “stomped,” members of the group, which the judge and the district attorney’s office have both referred to as a “mob,” chanted “fuck him up” over and over again.
“The best way I can describe it is the sound of people chanting in a soccer stadium,” Godinez told the court, also adding that Keenan was “laughing, smiling, and having a good time, while I could have died that day.”
Having listened to the testimony, the judge ordered the two Antifa defendants to stand trial for aggravated assault and conspiracy charges, as well as a host of misdemeanors. The leftists, who supposedly stand for such high-minded social justice causes as racial equality, will also face a felony charge of ethnic intimidation.
This case is a flashlight on truth on the so-called “anti-fascists” that the media refuses to take seriously as a threat to civil order. This is who they really are – a wild, racist, violent mob that cares more about wreaking havoc than about any supposed political cause. These two losers are going away for a while. Hopefully, they won’t be the last.
